Climate resilience and adaptation to climate change
Improve your resilience in the face of climate change
Alcimed works daily on projects at the heart of climate resilience. We accompany our clients in their projects to adapt to climate change, predicting the impacts of environmental disruptions on markets, increasing the sustainability and resilience of their business, and adapting it to the challenges of the transition (offers, positioning, business model, technologies, etc.).
the CHALLENGES RELATED TO CLIMATE RESILIENCE and adaptation to climate change
What is climate resilience?
As defined in the 6th IPCC report, the concept of climate resilience involves implementing measures to strengthen the capacity of individuals and systems for mitigating vulnerability to climate risks and hazards such as floods and droughts, as well as to adapt to such risks.
All social, economic, and industrial systems are impacted by the climate crisis and therefore need to take action to maintain their proper functioning, anticipate and minimize the impacts on their activities, seize opportunities that arise, and act for the environment in order to avoid worsening the situation or amplifying the resulting dangers.
What are the challenges related to climate resilience?
The climate crisis is provoking the emergence of new challenges for industries and governments, pushing them to rethink their operating systems and business models, and to develop specific roadmaps to cope with current and future climate hazards and their impacts.
As this crisis and its multiple consequences are expected to intensify in the coming years, it is becoming essential for any organization aiming to ensure its sustainability and take action for the environment to properly understand the multiple challenges that arise from it:
- Developing more energy-efficient and resource-efficient factories that also minimize water usage
- Adopting a circular economy approach to limit resource consumption, waste generation, and promote recycling and reuse
- Implementing new eco-designed services and products that are more responsible and sustainable
- Health risks for the general population and workers, such as heat waves and the resurgence of certain vector-borne diseases carried by insects
- The risk to contaminate resources and natural environments
- Industrial vulnerability during heat waves, such as difficulties in cooling nuclear power plants, combustion of chemicals resulting in toxic fumes, etc.
- Risks linked to material performance, such as deformation of rails due to heat, thermal degradation of plastics, etc.
What are the climate threats related to my activity? What actions can be implemented to mitigate these threats?
To this end, actors from all sectors must reduce their environmental impact to progress towards carbon neutrality. This involves measuring their CO2 emissions, defining a climate strategy, and actively managing the reduction of their emissions.
What low-carbon strategy can I implement to reduce my emissions? Which carbon capture and storage technologies should I consider?
What is the impact of my activity on biodiversity? What measures can I implement to have a positive impact on biodiversity?
Whether it is the development of technologies and services to decarbonize our production systems, optimize resource utilization, enhance resilience to climate-related hazards, or restore biodiversity, there are numerous solutions yet to be developed to take action for the environment and adapt to it.
What are the market opportunities related to my industry? What solutions and services should be developed to meet the new needs?
How is the ecosystem related to my activity impacted by the ecological transition? How can I adapt my value proposition and business model to address the new challenges?
How do we support you in your climate resilience projects
Alcimed supports its clients in various energy and environmental challenges, particularly those related to climate resilience and adaptation to environmental changes. We regularly undertake missions with diverse stakeholders in these areas, including energy and environmental industry players (Suez, Veolia, EDF, Orano, RTE, etc.), cosmetics companies (L’Oréal, Chanel, etc.), aerospace and defense industry players (Safran, Airbus, Thales, Dassault Aviation, etc.), healthcare companies (Sanofi, Moderna, Pfizer, etc.), as well as national and European research institutions and centers (such as Carnot institutes or SATTs).
The diversity of our clients, the geographical areas we explore, and the types of projects we undertake provide us with a global and in-depth understanding of
climate-related issues and challenges. Our projects cover a wide range of topics, including the development of climate roadmaps, energy transition strategies, market opportunity assessments, studies of the most resilient solutions and strategies to climate hazards, launching innovations, identifying academic or industrial partners, and much more!
